THE ELITE FISHING SYSTEM ™
The «Elite Fishing System (FS)»series LOWRANCE, combines the most advanced technology with the latest tried and tested fish finding tools, in a screen that is very easy to use. With a new design, upgraded sonar output (1KW) and the ability to connect an external Radar unit via ethernet, the new FS standσ out in the field of Electronic Fishing.
ELITE FS series,offers high definition real-time images through the innovative new system ActiveTarget ™ Live sonarand high resolution images on the seabed substrate, with the photographic imaging sensor «Active Imaging ™ 3σε1».
The new series stand out!
The updatedMultitouch screen, in combination with the operating environment, it offers a newuser friendly experience and quick accessto all the functions of the devices. Conventional sonar,CHIRPtechnology, DownScan / SideScan and real-time mapping, all readily available on a device that stands out in the category of specialized tools for use in fishing.
CHIRP (Compressed High Intensity Radar Pulse) technology, is the evolution of the seabed scanning process.
The signal transmission with CHIRPtechnology, enables the collection of high quality information, resulting in a clearer and higher resolution of the seabed image. Seabed imaging with CHIRP technology offers the user excellent seamless target-loss separation in greater detail.
The newElite FS, provides all the tools neededto make fishing more efficient.
LED Multi-touch, High Definition screen
The devices have excellent High Definition multi-touch screens with high resolution to satisfy even the most demanding users. The new flat screen of the ELITE FS series, works like a smartphone and offers a wider viewing angle, advanced anti-reflective coating for perfect exposure in bright light.
For the first time, available in the Elite FS series, watertight Ethernet network port for communication and data exchange between devices. Networking adds to Lowrance’s Elite family the ability to share sonar, charts, locations, routes and other user data across screens.
Connection to externalRadar module
Elite FS devices are compatible with the external Radar module connection.
With a total of five (5) options available on an outdoor radar unit(3G / 4G / Halo 20 / Halo 20+ / Halo24), nothing can threaten the safety of the boat (or remain hidden *) within 24/32/36/48 nautical miles.
* It is possible to overlap Radar points on the shipping map.
NMEA 0183 / NMEA 2000®
the communication protocol NMEA 0183 is used for data exchange.
NMEA network 2000® is used for communication and connection of peripheral devices (audio player, bottom camera, anemometer, electronic compass, fuel sensors, etc.).
Most engine manufacturers offerΝΜΕΑ2000®connectionkit to display all the information related to the operation of the engine (speed, operating hours, temperature, consumption, etc.).
Autopilot / Electronic Anchor
The ELITE FS range includes specifications for connecting and operating autopilot and Electronic Anchor directly from the boat display. The autopilot system is designed for boats up to 10m long with a single or double external engine.
C Map Genesis™ LIVE mapping
The ELITE FS series offers the ability to map the seabed in real time. With C Map Genesis ™ LIVE, it is possible to create a personal map easily and quickly at the touch of a button while fishing.
Automatic route planning
With LOWRANCE®’s easy-to-use updated menu, safe navigation is a matter of minutes. Through the navigation keys it is possible to enter starting points, stations and destination by simultaneously calculating distances of each leg of the route. It is possible to convert an executed route to a route planning automatically for a future repetition of it.
*The existence of a C-MAP or Navionics shipping map is a prerequisite for automatic route planning.
Built-in high-precision GPS antenna
The built-in high-precision GPS antenna has a position correction mechanism with WAAS / EGNOS / MSAS without the need for additional equipment.
Sonar Color Palettes
The ELITE FS series offers 14 different color palettes in conventional sonar and 10 different palettes in bottom structure operation. Always available, the palette 13 that clearly separates the bottom with shades of brown and the targets with different colors, offering the most realistic seabed and split target depictions.
Spots, traces, routes
Up to 3,000 spots, 100 tracks and 100 traces with 10,000 points per trace can be stored in the device’s internal memory without an additional micro SD card.
A waterproof microSD port is available for use with a detailed navigation map and unlimited bottom records for “home training”.
4 Panel split
